About Hearts of Steel:
His steel empire has catapulted him to the top of the world, but loving her could cost him everything.
Maggie Molinaro survived a hardscrabble childhood in the downtrodden streets of Manhattan to become a successful businesswoman. After a decade of sacrifice, she now owns a celebrated ice cream company. But when she offends a corrupt banker, she unwittingly sets off a series of calamities that threaten to destroy her life’s work.
Liam Blackstone is a charismatic steel magnate committed to overhauling factory conditions for the steelworkers of America. Standing in his way is the same villain determined to ruin Maggie. What begins as a practical alliance to defeat a common enemy soon evolves into a romance between two wounded people determined to beat the odds.
A spiraling circle of treachery grows increasingly dangerous as Liam and Maggie risk their lives and fortunes for the good of the city. It will require all their wit and ingenuity to protect everything–and everyone–they hold dear.
About the Author:
Elizabeth Camden is best known for her historical novels set in Gilded Age America, featuring clever heroines and richly layered story lines. Before she was a writer, she was an academic librarian at some of the largest and smallest libraries in America, but her favorite is the continually growing library in her own home.
Her novels have won Christy, Carol, and RITA Awards and have appeared on the CBA bestsellers list. She lives in Orlando, Florida, with her husband, who graciously tolerates her intimidating stockpile of books.
Maggie has worked hard from a precarious start to form her own ice cream company. It’s not just popular but celebrated by people far and wide. But one small mistake threatens to take away everything she worked for so hard and long.
She offends the wrong man and that man holds some purse strings. But Maggie is not his only target. Can she form an alliance that could possibly save her company? Could it also impact her life in other ways.
This is a romance novel, of course it does! Liam Blackstone believes in good working conditions for steel workers unlike some other people in town – specifically the same man who is causing problems for Maggie. Can the two of them work together to bring him down?
